of everyone. there's the big race for sure rod brown -- sherrod brown. you'll see them everywhere, positive and negative. the same for the presidential race. those are the predominant ones. the interesting thing, it is amazing. you hear the repetition of those talking points. then you wonder, do people really get any deeper? do they actually investigate or are they merely turning on various channels and. the talking heads? over the weekend i was listening to someone and they said all we are looking for is that sound bite, that one little point. i am off work right now recovering from a health issue, but i'm doing great. my goal in life is for us to be a working population that contributes to a better society, not having a mud race over who can throw the most bmud. we have businesses coming back to ohio and people going back to work, but the ads are increasingly longer and there are more them. you cannot run away. host: thanks for spending time with us and explain the situation in ohio. there's a new york post cartoon this morning with an anger man delivering campaign news. appears a clip fr
to sherrod brown, who says that happens in the brown campaign. i suspect that is happening in many campaigns. there is so much fact checking going on, not just with our organizations, but with others. we have partners in 11 states. there are newspapers and website around the country doing fact checking. there are a lot of eyes out there. >> that suggest, if things are that closely vetted and mauled over before they are said, especially speeches at the conventions, when they come out and repeat things that they know are going to the fact that again, that suggests there is no price. they have concluded that the price is so small that they are willing to -- >> there may be a price, but it is balanced against the fact that it is a tested and the fact of life that moves voters. you do a cost-benefit analysis, like anything in life, the benefits quickly away the costs of yet another column in "the washington post" or the associated press that says there is no money there your saving from ending the war. >> it happens. >> sometimes i am struck by the aggressiveness of the ads, compared to what come
. the spanish vote turned out in huge numbers for jerry brown who did little to win their affection. >> we could be easily having this conversation about the difficulties. if you have the candidates will have the hispanic vote, we would ask why obama was going to drop even lower. republicans have set themselves a hurdle that is so high by allowing democrats to get a these are of this population, and the share of light that have to win becomes the reagan-esque. >> you can not just as soon because there is a group of hispanic votes that they are democrats. an african american republican gets very few african american votes. if in the long run republicans can get themselves right on immigration, i think there is every reason to believe that republicans could do better. as multiple generations ago, and they become more moderate. they might have some traction. that is not sure if you look at places like new mexico where you have hundreds of years of hispanic residents. young people are very liberal. you have a moderation on those issues. at any rate it is very complicated. >> lebron had said somethin
for a debate between incumbent president scott brown and elizabeth warren. c-span will have coverage of that. that will be followed at shinnecock by -- 8:00. c-span2 will have eric cantor as she squares off against a former army colonel when powell. live coverage at 7:00 eastern on c-span2. "usa" richard walsh sat down with an interview with ross perot. c-span cameras were there to record the interview from his home and office in texas. he talked about running as a third-party candidate, dealing with the country's debt, and the u.s. education system. here is a look. >> go to our most elite engineering schools. at one time we had more talented engineer than anyone else. we were discovering everything in the world. now that has all turned around. and it is getting worse by the day. 78% of the people getting ph.d. is in our most elite engineering schools come from either china or india. ok? now, 20% come from all over the world. now i'm up to 90%. that means 2% of the people getting phd's are coming from the united states and our most elite engineering schools. that is a recipe for disaster. we
circuit took that case and came up with a much more narrow ground. it looks to me that it is brown's uniquely tailored for justice kennedy. judge reinhardt ended up holding it. he basically says, look, we will leave an address whether this test is rational scrutiny as a matter of its cell. but when you already have a state where the law says you eliminate that right for a specific class of people for people who want to engage in same-sex marriage, then it gets a high and rational basis that we saw in rumor vs. evans. in that there seems to be no reason for that except rhode animus against the class of people that you are removing from this marriage thing. so it makes a difference in their mind that it is removing it from a right that was already there could set aside the fact that the right was there after the california court found it, after this whole history of citizens having passed a friend up trying to block it and the courts continue funneling -- courts continue refining it again. if you have the right and you take away, that is now an equal protection violation. so it has b
unfit, or have a criminal record. that is not good enough. we went to topeka, kan., the site of brown versus board. i said i think this is the civil rights issue of our generation. the dividing line is not race or class, but around educational opportunity. if we're serious about closing the achievement gap, we have to close the opportunity gap. i do not think we have had anything near the sense of urgency and commitment to closing those gaps that we need to. to look at the staggering inequities and inequalities, we have to get better faster. all those things compel us to act. the president has provided leadership. he understands what is at stake. congress has been supportive. we have to work on this together and put politics and the ideology aside. we have to educate our way to a better economy. i talk about a cradle to career agenda. we have to start with early childhood education. i could make a compelling case that is the best investment we can make. if we can get our babies into kindergarten and ready to read, we start to close the gaps. if we do not do that, we're playing catch-u
. governor schwarzenegger and brown said we're not going to defend proposition 8 and then they about intervenors. i think the court system is based on these procedures. the court wants to make sure . >> there is a law that says if the president is not going to defend a federal statute, and the attorney general has to write a letter to both houses of congress saying here is why i'm going to take the unusual step of not defending it. they have the right to come in and defend the statute they pass. >> i want to ask you a question. >> we saw all kinds of cases about the rights of detainees in guantanamo bay and how much they have a right to challenge the conditions and how much the court entertain them. the supreme court seems to take no interest in these cases and is content to let them work out the limitations. veryen though they're controversial, at the cases are being well addressed by very well expected -- well-respected courts. as a historical matter, things are settling down. after 9/11 just like any crisis, there is a reaction by government. the government puts things in place qu
the fact that brokers in virginia had elected a republican. in massachusetts, the scott brown race was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance,
black and brown communities. i'm so glad are our alternatives community banks and credit unions now. keep up the good work, young lady. thank you. host: for more information about what your group is doing and you are the director of the program, ptrust.org is one of the websites. caller: a lady called about not being able to have a bank account because there was a minimum balance she had to maintain. i belonged tour credit union for years and the minimum balance is $5. when my children were in high school, they wanted to manage their own money and put their money in wachovia. my daughter had a conniption when she put a hundred dollars in and the next time she made a deposit she only had $80 because of the minimum balance fee. and that's when i converted her to the credit union. she has been there ever since. my children don't save money, but they have an account as long as they live, because that account will remain open because of the $5 balance they have to have. as long as they put in $1.90 for the checking account fees, that went into effect this year and everybody complaint, bu
